The Fifth Street Hub, located on the far west end of campus, is home to the College of Engineering, Design and Computing machine shop, the place where students design, develop, and manufacture their Capstone Design projects. The Hub is open to all engineering students.
Machining for research projects is charged at $150/hour.
THE HUB IS OPEN!
The Hub will be open on a limited basis and by appointment only beginning Sept. 21, 2020. NOTE: Badge access will not be granted.

Requests will be approved or rejected based on the total number of requests. Please limit requests to two (2) people per team at any one time.
